Saturated with quince, glazed peach and dried apricot notes, along with toasted pineapple and brioche on the finish. It shows a creme brule edge but stays light and floral at the same time. Tasted non-blind at the chateau.

A bit thin but paired nicely with seared foie gras.

About This Producer


Chateau Gilette utilizes the unique practice of extremely long-term storage before releasing their wines. The wine is actually stored in the same concrete tanks in which it is fermented for between fifteen and eighteen years before it is bottled. The wine is then stored for a further three to five years before it available for sale. The vineyard at Chateau Gilette is also very small, only 4.5 hectares, and it is planted with 85% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon and 5% Muscadelle.
